NEW 2019 Pre-Summit Training Course

Get the most out of your 2019 OSEHRA Summit experience this July by signing up for our new Pre-Summit Training Course, SQL Reporting of VistA Data, led by YottaDB LLC’s Christopher Edwards. YottaDB has partnered with OSEHRA to offer on-site technical training at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center on Monday, July 8, prior to the start of the 2019 OSEHRA Summit. This single-day class will demonstrate and explore how to use SQL to access VistA for statistical analysis and reporting.

Course Overview
VistA is a powerful free/open source transactional system for electronic health records. Adding SQL access to VistA enables statistical analysis tools that can help you get even more value from the data. Join us to discover some of the most powerful, standard, off-the-shelf tools available that use SQL to access data. Attendees will leave with a running VistA system that has SQL access from selected free/open source SQL clients (Squirrel SQL – – is the current target).

This will be a hands-on class, and you will need to bring your own computer. The class will be taught using a Docker image provided by the instructor. This image will contain a VistA system pre-populated with synthetic patient data that runs YottaDB on Linux, using Octo by YottaDB for SQL access. Though this Docker image will be used for training, the techniques learned in this training will be largely applicable and pertinent to other VistA systems.
